Julie Latimer - Australia

Friendly and safety conscious crew. I've been on lots of Live Aboards and this was by far the best crew!

Jan and Hanmi Meyer - USA

The staff were very professional and focused, but still lots of fun! The sites looked healthy and the sea life was amazingly diverse.

Diana Ho - Australia

The efforts of the crew to ensure maximum enjoyment. All the crew were enthusiastic and super friendly.


March delivers!

From the dive deck – By Kiana Saltarelli


The Coral Sea and Great Barrier Reef welcomed Spoilsport back this week with schools of barracuda, big eye trevally and unicorn fish in the hundreds. A juvenile spotted eagle ray swam past divers at False Entrance, two silvertip sharks graced the waters at North Horn, and photographers caught the act of cuttlefish laying eggs amongst the corals of Coral Kingdom.

Virginia Scott - Australia

The care of the crew the minute we got off the plane, dive brief, checking of our dive skills. Everyone worked so hard to make sure it was perfect, and it was!

Justin Wigg - USA

The crew was top notch and made the trip uncomparable. In addition to providing an amazing and safe diving experience, the on board experience was a blast! I know why MB comes so highly recommended, and I will be continuing to pass along the high praise.

Bill & Cindy Marhofer - USA

The staff and the attention to detail made this trip one to remember. Everyone always had a smile on their face. Great crew and the boat was extremely comfortable.

Incredible massive walls and dropoffs around Osprey. What a great trip and an even better crew!


THREE DAYS OF THE BEST DIVING!

From the dive deck – By Kerrin Jones


This expedition we visited three different areas to provide guests with a variety of great diving, starting out in the Coral Sea at Bougainville Reef with lovely colourful coral walls, great visibility and plenty of fishlife. Osprey Reef delivered a hammerhead sighting and an action-packed shark feed, and Ribbon Reef #10 provided the best of the GBR, before we returned to Cairns to avoid Cyclone Trevor.

Glassy Calm

From the dive deck – By Jelle Kolet


No wind and blue skies made for rare oily calm conditions that had divers smiling from ear to ear. Endless visibility at False entrance on Osprey reef where numerous sharks, eagle rays and schooling trevally put up a show. The pinnacle dives where a hit with mantis shrimp, nudibranchs, turtles and leaf scorpion fish.

SHARKS FOR EVERYONE!

From the dive deck – By Kerrin Jones


It was a great week for shark encounters, with a rare tiger shark sighting, some close encounters with a couple of tawny nurse sharks and of course our North Horn Amphitheatre shark feed dive. Divers also enjoyed swimming with schools of barracuda and getting up close with friendly potato cod, along with turtles, sea snakes, mantis shrimp and nudibranchs.
